A Poem by Yunus, a Sufi Mystic

1 post in this topic

Posted (edited)

I AM BEFORE, I AM AFTER

 

I am before, I am after

The soul for all souls all the way.

I'm the one with a helping hand

Ready for those gone wild, astray.

 

I made the ground flat where it lies,

On it I had those mountains rise,

I designed the vault of the shies,

For I hold all things in my sway.

 

To countless lovers I have been

A guide for faith and religion.

I am sacrilege in men's hearts

Also the true faith and Islam's way.

 

I make men love peace and unite;

Putting down the black words on white,

I wrote the four holy books right

I'm the Koran for those who pray.

 

It's not Yunus who says all this:

It speaks its own realities:

To doubt this would be blasphemous:

"I'm before-I'm after," I say.
